Description

Nagda is a small town in the Indian state of Rajasthan. In the 6th century, Nagda was found by Nagaditya, the fourth Mewar King. Initially it was known as Nagahrida and served as the capital of Mewar. Nagda is located besides Bagela Lake at a distance of 23 km in the north-west of Udaipur on the way to Nathdwara. Nagda comprises many small and big temples, but the main attraction is gained by its Sas-BahuMother-in-law and Daughter-in-law” temple dating back to the 10th century. The temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and it is made in two structures, one by a mother-in-law and the another, by a daughter-in-law. The temple is accredited for having wonderful carvings.
